    <strong>Rappers Wearing Animal Print</strong>
    Hip-hop and fashion have long been bound to each other, but of the many styles that have been prevalent among rappers throughout the years, none has caused more eyebrow-raising than the latest craze: animal print.<br /><br />A longtime staple in women's closets, animal print has made a noticeable appearance in a number of men's lines this year. This past February, Drake rocked a cheetah-print button-up shirt from Opening Ceremony while attending Grammy-weekend festivities in Los Angeles. Then in March, Kanye West sported a $3,000 Givenchy leopard bomber jacket to a show during Paris Fashion Week.<br /><br />To commemorate the newly-tapped trend, <em>XXL</em> presents a gallery of rappers rocking the spotty pattern. Welcome to the jungle.<em>—Ralph Bristout and Mariel Concepcion</em>
